The project of helmet augmented reality (RA) you are developing Apple It will be presented at the end of next year and will integrate a main processor that will have a processing capacity similar to that of a desktop computer of the brand.

As indicated by the analyst specializing in Apple Ming-Chi Kuo in a new report collected by Macrumors, this device will have two processors, one of them of a similar power to the one that integrates the iMac.

The main will be a high-end processor with “the same level of computing power than M1“from Apple, in the words of the analyst, according to 9to5Apple. This chip, which was introduced a year ago, will be backed by a lower-end chip, which will manage the operation of the sensors.

The reason they need this power is because the sensor’s computing power is higher than that of the iPhone. “RA headsets require at least six to eight optical modules to simultaneously provide RA services streaming video to users. In comparison, an iPhone requires up to three optical modules running simultaneously and does not require continuous computing “, the analyst has detailed.

Ming-Chi Kuo has indicated that this helmet will be equipped with of Sony’s 4K micro OLED screens, who will also support virtual reality (VR) experiences, and has hinted that will work independently, without the need to be connected with another Apple device.

“If it is placed only as an accessory for Mac or iPhone, it will not be conducive to product growth. An AR helmet that works independently indicates that it will have its own ecosystem and will provide user experience more complete and flexible “, mentioned the analyst.
